Hi there!

The Vicki Boutin DT is celebrating NSD with a fun recipe challenge that we are hoping will also inspire you to pull your Vicki Magic and get documenting your memories.

Our Recipe consists of:

  • Watercolor Markers
  • A large Title
  • at least 3 patterned papers
  • Butterflies
  • Color Kaleidoscope Stencil set
So, i decided to use all of them to create today's project.  It all started with creating a background using the stencil and the watercolor markers

While the watercolor dried, i fussy cut butterflies from the 12x12  and 6x8  Color Kaleidoscope paper pads, as well as used VIcki's new cut file to create the large title - you can download Vicki's cut file by clicking here-

I cut the title twice from white cardstock, but only added gold glaze with a stencil brush to one of them.   These were glued together with a bit of an offset so, that it would stand out in the background.

Before adding everything on the page, the background was trimmed and stitched to the watercolor rainbow paper from the collection.  A few papers were used to back and layer the pictures.   Foam adhesive attaches everything to the background.  The fussy cut butterflies were added, followed with a bit of glitter glaze to the center of each image.  

I love how easily and fun this was to put together. The rainbow background creates the perfect background for the pictures, title and butterflies.  I have created a small video to show you how it all came together:

I hope you join us in the Vicki Boutin Mixed Media community page to join in the challenge and have the chance to win a set of those glorious Watercolor Markers.   As  always do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions on how this all came together.
